Sydney University Elite Athlete Program scholarship holder Sasha Ryan and her sailing partner Chelsea Hall will head to Perth for the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships later this year after an impressive showing at the 470 Junior European Championships.

Ryan and Hall finished in fifth place in the regatta, including a race win during the windiest day of competition, after coming back from sixth place leading into the medal race.

Conditions at the Championships in Nieuwpoort, Belgium, were extremely tough.

“Nieuwpoort is known for its extreme amounts of current, and also massive waves and we certainly were not disappointed as we experienced a whole range of conditions throughout the event,” said Ryan.
